College is a time to branch out with new freedom to explore new opportunities. Be sure to stay safe, keep up with your work, but at the same time have plenty of fun. Keep an open mind. Expand your social network, take courses in subjects you're interested in, or get involved in that karate club you've had your eye on! Finally, try to grow as much as possible. In what could be your final years of schooling, you should aim to have somehow changed as a person for the better and to enlighten yourself physically and/or mentally.

Computer Science & Cognitive Science   Economics North Brunswick, NJ Because the Rutgers is so big, you can honestly do what you are interested in--whether it be knitting or jujitsu--and not be worried about what others think. Explore your potential while you are in college and indulge in what you find interesting because almost anything you want is already here. That being said, I know many people have several interests, too many even. It is vital to not spread yourself too thin in the beginning. I know coming into school after break makes you feel very ambitious, but ease into it because classes are very different from high school. Explore your passions, but remember that your grades matter a lot, so instead of diving head-first into a million clubs and sports, find the sweet spot to manage your grades and other activities.
